LISA GARDNER, author of Look for Me  

Monday, February 5, 2018 at 7 p.m.
International Launch Party with LISA GARDNER, author of Look for Me
Event to be held at: Horsefeathers, 2679 White Mountain Highway, North Conway

New year, new book from Valley resident Lisa Gardner! Be there for the international book launch of her latest novel, Look for Me.

Award-winning #1 New York Times Bestselling author and Valley resident, Lisa Gardner, delivers a new pulse-pounding thriller each year and never disappoints. Look for Me  is her new book, debuting on Monday, February 5, and White Birch Books will host the Launch Party. It’s the first place to see Lisa, ask questions, and get your signed copy. In fact, the book does not officially come out until the next day – so it really is the first place in the WORLD to buy her new book.

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner's latest twisty thrill ride, Detective D. D. Warren and Find Her's Flora Dane return in a race against the clock to either save a young girl's life . . . or bring her to justice.

The home of a family of five is now a crime scene: four of them savagely murdered, one—a sixteen-year-old girl—missing. Was she lucky to have escaped? Or is her absence evidence of something sinister? Detective D. D. Warren is on the case—but so is survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane. Seeking different types of justice, they must make sense of the clues left behind by a young woman who, whether as victim or suspect, is silently pleading, Look for me.

New York Times #1 bestselling crime novelist Lisa Gardner began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead and now has over 22 million books in print in over 30 countries.

Lisa lives in New Hampshire with her auto-racing husband and black-diamond skiing daughter. She spends her days writing in her loft with a gentle old sheltie and a wonderfully silly puppy.

NHWP’s Three Minute Fiction Slam!

Join us on Thursday, February 15th at the bookstore for The New Hampshire Writers' Project's Three Minute Fiction Slam!

A fast paced literary competition that challenges writers to perform original pieces of fiction in three minutes or less in front of a panel of judges. This year's regional winners will gather for a final showdown at the NH Institute of Art on Thursday, March 8, 2018.

Three-Minute Fiction Slam contest:

  • Writers take turns presenting original flash fiction pieces of no more than three minutes in length when read aloud. One point over-all will be deducted if an author goes over the allotted three minutes.
  • After each writer is done, judges give verbal feedback and secretly record a numeric score out of five.
  • The judges keep a private score for each piece. At the end of the night, the contestant with the highest score wins. In the event of a tie, the audience selects the winner through an “Applause-O-Meter” test as determined by the judges.

    Regional winners are invited to participate in the Three Minute Fiction Slam state finals.
  • Among other prizes, the ultimate winner gets free entrance to Writers' Day 2018 (the region's largest literary conference) where they will read the winning work before an audience of publishers, editors, agents, and fellow writers.
    Want to compete?
  • Compose and practice reading/performing a piece of flash fiction.
  • Email Anne at [email protected] to register.
Book Signing and Author Afternoon with Eric Pinder   Book Signing and Author Afternoon with Eric Pinder
Saturday, February 17 at 3pm

Eric will be at the bookstore for a discussion and book signing of his book CAT IN THE CLOUDS, which at long last is back in print!

Nin needs a home. Stray cat Nin drifts from house to house until he meets a meteorologist named Mark. Then Nin begins his greatest journey yet—to the top of Mount Washington. Follow Nin to a land where the wind howls, snow swirls and wild bears roam. At the famous Mount Washington Observatory, Nin learns that the best friends—and a wonderful home—can be found anywhere, even high above the clouds.

Richly illustrated with watercolors by T.B.R. Walsh, CAT IN THE CLOUDS will delight children and adults with a peek inside the famous weather observatory atop Mount Washington, where a handful of hardy meteorologists and clever cats have watched the weather since 1932.

Today, Eric teaches creative writing at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, and often visits schools and libraries to share stories about the writing life, books and animals. He holds a BA from Hampshire College and an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
